Kansas City, Kansas (PressExposure) May 19, 2011 -- The Overland Park Kansas based auto detailing company, KC Detailing, opens their doors for a new avenue of customers. If you know anything about the company, you know that they work on a lot of high-end luxury and exotic cars. Most of their detail jobs run over $300 and some run way over a $1000. But they have decided to add a hand wash and clean service to the list. Tim Dodd, the owner of KC Detailing commented by saying "we get a ton of calls from people who want the quality of service that we perform but are not interested in getting a $300 detail that will take five or six hours. They want their cars done in an hour or two and don't want to break the bank. Everyone has been to the local gas station car wash but very few are satisfied with what they receive there. With us, the customers are getting a hand wash as opposed to an automatic wash, underneath their seats are vacuumed as opposed to just the main floor areas, the door jambs are wiped-down, they can upgrade to a hand wax if they want and they can get a full carpet and seat machine shampoo without purchasing the Complete Detail package." The companies goal with this service is to offer a better, more convenient, service than the local gas station car wash. While the whole "better, more convenient service" thing may sound cliche, the crew is actually doing it. And, they are doing it very well.
Recently, the team was sent out to a Kansas City home to perform their new Hand Wash and Clean service. The car was a large SUV that was owned by a soccer mom. French fries, soda, toys, candy and all other kinds of goodies were awaiting the detailing team. The mom prefers her car to be clean, neat and orderly, but didn't have the time for the KC Detailing team to hold her car up for six hours. And she wasn't interested in spending $300 or more on a car that she knows will get trashed within a few weeks.
At 12:50pm Alex and Melody, the crews top detailers, got started. With under two hours to get the job done, they both had quiet the challenge ahead of them. Normally the two of them would have six hours to make sure every single little area, crack and crevice was spotless and sparkling. It was painful for them to realize that there might be dust or grim left anywhere inside or outside the vehicle. With the pressure washer on and the washing mitts in their hands, the challenge began.
Having keen eyes and OCD personalities, the two of them moved swiftly and within two hours they had pulled it off. But, the car didn't look like it had just been cleaned, the car looked like it had just been detailed. The wheels were shining, the paint was glossing, the carpets were machine shampooed and looking great, the leather looked perfect and the windows were smudge free. Even the door jambs looked great on the car. As the clock hit 2:50pm, the SUV was done and the mom was on the road with her kids. The Hand Wash and Clean mission was accomplished and it turned out better than the crew hoped it would.
Tim is very enthusiastic about their new service and think it will be a big hit in the Kansas City area. With an excited voice and a cheesy smile, Tim said "The mom was happy that we were able to get her car washed at her location, within her available time frame and at a rate that was within her justifiable budget. But what most impressed her was how friendly Alex and Melody were and how amazing her once trashed SUV looked. We are very excited to see where we will be able to go with this." Tim explained that the Hand Wash and Clean service will take anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours to perform as opposed to the standard three to six hour car detail.
It appears that the guys at KC Detailing are going to have to buy a few new vans to keep up with the demand their new service is bringing.
Kansas City is an area where people absolutely love their cars and the crew at KC Detailing is excited to be a part of that love and build a continued relationship with the people. Their companies slogan is "Delivering the Details" and this journalist feels that it is right on target. With so many bad businesses out there, it is comforting to know that good ones still exist.
